Being of Service.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


When is it okay to put yourself first? I am a mother who has raised her children selflessly for the past 13 years while working in home daycare. I still work in a job in the one-on-one care of multiple children. I am increasingly finding myself anxious and unmotivated with my job. I have been in this career field for over a decade and I want to pursue other avenues that are better suited to me at this time. I have always believed in the principle of service to others but when is it okay to put yourself first? I feel I will be disappointing the parents and the children in my care by deciding to quit and move on to some other career. I am feeling "stuck".


Activity that is in accord with your life purpose will automatically balance your individual needs with your service to others. It’s not really a matter of choosing yourself over others. When your service to others is no longer supporting your own needs, then its time to find another activity where that balance can be achieved.

    You have to take care of yourself first before you can take care of others. Finding that balance of when you are done progressing so you can then progress others (yourchildren), is what Deepak is saying. you go about it that way bc if we are teaching or showing our children something, we have to know about it first. its like me teaching multiplication with out knowing addition and subtraction. But I don`t have to be an expert at adding or subtracting to teach how to multiply.

    I understand we have two grandchildren and I love them and want only the best for their well being But at times the craziness that's created by a 9 and 5 yr old can rattle me I try so hard to be calm and see the fun and joy,but at my age and with medical problems I can become anxious I know it's good they have a safe place to come. But can agree if it was my job daily it wouldn't be in the best interest for the children to be with me always
